The Dangers of Falling Locusts

  Here's a crazy trail story...

Migratory-locust

The other day I was out for a bike ride when I got pegged in the face by something that felt like a pretty big bug (a locust) falling from a tree that struck me perfectly between my left eye and my sunglasses while going 20 miles per hour.

Subsequently I almost ran into another rider traveling in the opposite direction because of how bad it hit me and hurt at the same time we were passing each other.

I ended up with a nice blood blister on the lower part of my left eye in the white part. Luckily it does not effect my vision. Fun times out on the trail! :-)
